with the rest of the world. if we are going to expend, use up these loopholes to pay for new spending or to avoid the kind of budget cutting that we need to do or the kind of entitlement reform, i mean, some of the entitlement reform that has been proposed, a different way of calculating the cola, cost of living adjustment, which would amount to literally pennies a day for people, it would not be a crippling kind of cut, that is what needs to be done and needs to be addressed right away. >> i don't get it, though. they can't cut 2.9% of the budget on spending. that seems to be a small amount. we should be able to do it. but they can't do that. when it comes to raising taxes, nobody actually wants to raise them because they will raise them on a lot of people. there's no courage on either side. >> exactly right. when other countries look at our governing class right now, there's no honesty in any direction. the fact of the matter is a lot of the things that could be done to secure social security aren't that hard. it's absolutely true, though, that medicare is tough and requires real de

of communist state. >> why would they target the u.s. embassy? >> they are anti-capitalist. and they're very, very opposed to the u.s. and nato. analysts say probably two reasons for this attack. one is to embarrass the turkish government. two is to protest the presence of u.s. patriot missiles on turkish soil. right now, 400 american troops are in turkey and they are moving that patriot missile battery into position on turkey's border with syria. turkey requested that help because of the mortars flying in from syria and they wanted the american missile to help shoot it down. >> and chris, how was the attacker able to gain access to the embassy compound? with all this talk about embassy security and what happened in ben gauzy, how was the attacker able to get there? >> basically he walked up to the embassy wear along suicide vest. but it's a gated compound with blast doors, reinforced woibs, and several checkpoints. he never made it past the very first checkpoint. so when he exploded his vest, it killed one of the local turkish guards whoed what been working for the embassy. it also injured
and medicaid are actually going to cost us a lot less than we thought, $200 billion a year less starting around 2020, with some earlier reductions before that. and that would cover basically what we're looking at in sequester. it just shows you how small it is and how we need a much bigger deal. >> speaking of that, simpson-bowles, the infamous couple were out today and they were saying look, this is true, by the way, what we were saying was a heck of a lot bigger than what they're talking about now with the forced cuts and what we were saying is far short of what we need to do. but you know what i love about simpson? you know what, he calls b.s. here he is with politico's mike alan. >> mr. bowles, you referred to them as dumb. >> stupid. yeah. >> three times you used that word. >> they are dumb and they are stupid, stupid, stupid. they're stupid because first of all -- they are inane. look, there's no business in the country that makes its cuts across the board. you go in there and try to cut those things that have the least adverse effect on productivity. second, they're cutting those areas w
hollen. the ranking member of the house budget committee. not every day we get to hear that word used on capitol hill. >> i will put aside the posterior politics right now. other than that, let's get at it. >> the president criticized republicans for their unwillingness to raise taxes in order to reduce the deficit but i wanted to ask you this, because you know the numbers. the tax policy center has said that nearly 80% of american households have gotten a higher federal tax bill because of the fiscal cliff deal you all did at the beginning of the year. why do you want to raise taxes again? >> well, because we want to take a balanced approach. again, we have now cut $1.5 trillion if you look at the spending caps that were imposed as part of the budget control act agreement. then as part of the fiscal cliff agreement which you just referenced, we raised about $600 billion. what we've said is as we go forward, we should use the same model as the bipartisan fiscal commissions and continue to take that balanced approach. yes, additional cuts in a targeted way, not a senseless way, but als
, he talked about the crimes but ignores the cover-ups. uses the past tense as to suggest it's not still happening. he has vast powers and he's done very little to make a difference. is that true? >> i don't know exactly what the pope has done to atone for what's happened. i do know that this has been a scandal in our church, but worst of all, it has been -- caused serious harm to children for many years. and that we as a church need to atone for that. paying money is one thing, but we all know that doesn't make up or atone for the sin of these crimes against children. we have a lot still to do. we need leadership that will engage that issue. >> and do you think, brian, that the next pope needs to be active on this? there are still cases now in this country where there are priests who abuse children and there were people, perhaps, at the highest level of the vatican, who covered up for that. >> i think the next pope absolutely needs to be sensitive to this, but he also needs to be recognized that pope benedict was the first pope to meet with victims of sex abuse. he was a pop
and neil heslin who joins us tonight. mr. heslin, you spoke incredibly moving today about the last moments with your son. as you think back to that terrible day, what memory sticks with you the most? >> most touching is probably when he was getting out of the truck with me and i was unhooking his seat belt. he gave me a hug and embraced me and was patting me on the back and holding me. >> why is it important for you and so important for you to have been in washington today to testify, to speak not only about gun control but about your son? >> well, i just feel that it's something i have to do. i feel i'm jesse's voice, and i feel there's got to be changes made. and not just one change, but several changes to be effective. >> you talked today about changes in mental health laws and background checks and gun control legislation and high-capacity magazines. is there one, or to you is it you want all of these things to be acted upon? >> i think any change is going to help, but i think for it to be a significant change, they all have to take place. what happened at sandy hook elementary was man

of the united states. and we had to avoid that. the hope was that they would use this year and a half to come up with a sensible deficit reduction package. now, we've reduced $2.5 trillion on our deficit. we've got about $1.5 trillion more to go. there's a better way to do it than this, but the key is for them to go ahead and put forward the balanced, responsible approach that will avoid these cuts. >> he wants them to put forth the approach. john boehner, meanwhile with, is the them, sort of. he made his case directly to the people too, today, blaming the president and he wrote in a "wall street journal" op-ed, mr. president, we agree that your sequester is bad policy. what spending are you willing to cut to replace it? so he's saying, mr. president, can you come up with something? whoo, this doesn't look so good, right? we've got eight television interviews, an op-ed in the largest weekday newspaper, but where is the action? robert reich is the former u.s. labor secretary to bill clinton and author of "beyond outrage," what's gone wrong with our economy and how to fix it and ari fleischer, for
on dishcretionary spending, boast domestic and defense. as you remember, what kept us from coming to the big agreement is we couldn't quite reach an agreement on the amount of entitleme entitlements, things like medicare savings, and the amount of revenue. there was significant revenue, at least $800 million on the table from republicans, but we didn't come to a deal. as we were working out how to avoid going into default, there was an agreement we needed an enforcement mechanism that would be so painful for both sides, that would make both sides come back to the table, and each give a little bit. i think the idea was it would bring us back to try to bring the type of grand bargain where we would get the revenues from tax reform we would need together with additional tax entitlement savings. i'm not saying we had all agreement back then, but i don't think anybody should ever think that you're moving the goalposts or anything like that. the whole dna of the sequester, the whole dna of the enforcement, was to make both sides come back and to be straight, to make democrats be willing to comprom
